The San Diego Hall of Champions is the nation’s largest multi-sport museum, boasting three levels of memorabilia and 68,000 square feet. The Hall of Champions, located in San Diego’s Balboa Park, stemmed from the concept of the Breitbard Athletic Foundation.
The Breitbard Athletic Foundation was founded in 1946 to promote educational work, encourage competition, and recognize significant athletic achievement in San Diego. The San Diego Hall of Champions recognizes San Diego’s outstanding athletic accomplishments and traditions through a number of events and platforms. Legendary local athletes such as Ted Williams, Tony Gwynn, Bill Walton, Tony Hawk, and many others are honored in the Breitbard Hall of Fame.
Additionally, the Hall of Champions provides sports programming for the community. This includes a number of initiatives designed to make sports accessible for little or no cost and allows sports to be a platform to teach and reinforce positive life skills. Each day, through its awards programs and community programming efforts, the Hall seeks to fulfill the vision of its founder, the legendary Bob Breitbard, who set out to motivate and inspire San Diegans of all ages to reach their full potential.
Finally, the Hall of Champions provides a backdrop for all types of events in an atmosphere of San Diego’s rich and diverse sports history. The Hall boasts a unique and spacious floor plan with three levels of rooms and exhibits. Additionally, the venue is equipped to handle complete audio visual, staging and lighting for any special occasion.
